Currently showing through Apr. 30. 103 Hariis hall, are maav top award winners, but none are of the long-haired type. TOP AWARD ALMOST WON One of the best is a broken, discarded paint palette. It was retrieved from a wastebasket and, with a few changes, became an earh.- English ocean front land-i gcape. Used by Marshall Field in an advertisement in Vogue, it almost won the top medal a<vard in tbe Chuago Art Division show in 1947- The original painting and a reproduction of the advertisement may be seen in the exhibit. Mr Johnstone hopes that attention to the chow will not be confined to art majors. The emphasis is on functional items of interest : to everyone. It includes examples of art in wallpaper, advertising design, packaging, hand-blocked fabrics, • an hangings, decorated screens, :>lust rated maps, Christmas cards, nnd landscapes. A 1947 Notrfe Dame football ticket, a Rexall football no?ter. and a Union Oil company Rani football schedule are included :n the display. ART AWARDS WON Awards were won by the various works in the Chicago Art Director -how and National Direct Mail -how. Other top honors were re-mved in the all-transportation class- Suggested highlights of the pre-entation are the inaugural sou- • enir flight folder of TWA’s- first :un from New York to Bombay, India: a photographic reproduction of a 40-foot mural done for a Chicago clothing company; a chemical laboratory advertisement, which won two coveted honors in he same year; and three first-prize maps in the transportation class. Easter Rabbit Brings Four-Day Studies Relief It’s Eastertime again. The cry of “Party-time!” echoes up and down the campus, as students dash off for a four-day holiday at the beach, mountains, or desert. Those unfortunate enough to be left in town frantically begin dyeing and hiding eggs for the small fry, threatening “Better be good, or the Easter bunny won’t leave anything at your house.” Doheny library will be the vacation-spot for the eager ones who want to pass their 10-weeks exams. But the holiday spirit is apparent everywhere. After all, Easter only comes once a year. Maybe it’s just as well. Easter Service Set for Bovard Music at noon performers will join with University Chaplain Clinton Neyman and the Religious council today to present a Holy Week service. The Easter program will present Dr. Irene Robertson, university organist, playing the service prelude, the Chorale and Prelude of “O Sacred Head Now Wounded,” Bach; and the organ postlude, “Gloria,” Dupre. Chaplain Neyman will read “An Easter Story in the Words of the Evangelists,” and wiU also lead a Holy Week prayer. Students of Prof. Alice Ehlers’ eighteenth century interpretation class will present the Easter dialogue, “Woman, Why Weepest Thou?” Schutz. Barbara Butterfield, soprano, will sing “Laudate Domin-um,” Mozart. Congregational singing, responsive reading, and a benediction have also been planned for the 50-minute Bovard program.

Row Primary Vote Heavy on First Day by John Eccleston Heavy balloting and plenty of political hoopla marked the opening of the EPC-conducted Row primary elections yesterday. Despite the late arrival of official ballots, 516 of an estimated 2500 eligible fraternity and sorority members cast their votes in booths in front of the Chi*------- Omega house. Polls failed to open at noon, as originally # scheduled, and long lines waited on the shady lawn until 1:15, when voting officially began. Queues formed all afternoon and harried EPC officials extended the voting time 14 minutes past the 4:30 deadline to accommodate a last-minute rush. RUSH OF VOTERS Vigorous electioneering and pos-^ sible levying of fines by some houses on nonvoting members, as well as the closeness of this year’s campaign, were regarded as the reasons for the rush' of voters. “It was a tough break that the ballots arrived late,” EPC chairman Chuck Jones said yesterday. “We’ll have more booths up tomorrow to handle the large last-day vote.” Of the 516 votes cast yesterday, 125 were by sorority women. Kappa Alpha Thetas and Tri-Delts ran a close 1-2 in ballot casting, according tf> an unofficial report. Sigma Chis turned out the most men voters as fraternity members cast 391 ballots. PICK UP BOXES Committee members Parnell Curry and Chuck Jones picked up ballot boxes immediately after the closing of the polling place. Counting of the first day’s ballots began late yesterday afternoon in the Delta Chi house. The same procedure will be followed today, and final tabulations wili probably be completed late tonight. Stern warning was issued yesterday by ASSC President Johnny Davis, who said that he had observed grave irregularities in the polling area and on campus. “Failure to comply with ASSC election rules will result in disqualification of the candidate,” he said. “The parade yesterday was in direct violation of campaign rules, and so were the banners on automobiles.” CAMPAIGN EXPENSES He particularly stressed article 4 of the ASSC rules, which limits campaign expenses to $45 for presidential candidates and $25 for ail other office seekers. “Money sp^nt in the Row primary Is included in this figure,” Davis said “All expenses so far must be conducted under t.his limitation.” Voting in the Row primary wiil continue today from 9 this morning until 4:30 this afternoon. Dr. Fagg Returns Following Illness Fred D. Fagg Jr., president of the university, returned to his desk yesterday following a three-month illness. Dr. Fagg suffered from a throat ailment. Fisher to Open Building Bids Bids on the new LAS building will be opened tomorrow morning at 10:05 by Financial Vice-president Robert D. Fisher. Fisher will meet with the contractors in the President’s conference room in the Administration building to open the sealed bids. Proposals are expected from eight contractors. Construction of the 4-story classroom-office structure will begin as soon as the contract can be award- The new 80,000-square foot build* ing will be ready for occupancy late in the fall. Grand Jury Indicts Mickey by United Press The County Grand Jury yesterday indicted gambling boss Mickey Cohen and 12 others in a police scandal resulting from the arrest and cover-up release of seven Cohen lieutenants. The 13 defendants, including three police officers, were named in the sweeping ihdictment which charged conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit assault, and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Superior Judge Robert H. Scott ruled that names in the indictment should remain secret until the suspects were in custody or placed under bond. Cohen, who had been free on, $100,000 bail in connection with the investigation, surrendered shortly afterward and his bail was continued at $100,000. The little haberdasher protested his innocence as he went into Court. ‘ It’s all the biggest farce I’ve ever seen,” he said. “It’s just a political beef.” Two of Cohen’s aides, James Rist and Eli Lubin, arrested on a fugitive warrant for their part in the asserted beating of radio-shop-own-er Alfred Pearson, which touched off the scandal, also appeaed in court and were returned to jail in lieu of $50,000 bond. Police Capt. L. M. Lorenson turned in his badge as chief investigator for the police commission an hour after the indictment was returned. Pearson had told the grand jury that Lorenson ordered the beating. Pearson also has a $45,000 damage suit pending against the officer, charging “continual harassment.” Lorenson and two suspended of-(Continued on Page 4) I Do Not Choose To Run—Padgett by Harvey Diederich Senate members reached a' compromise position an the “race and descent” issue when they referred it to the Council of Religion for further study last night. In a night of extensive and serious debate that saw Padgett withdraw from the political arena, the Senate agreed to accept the proposal of the commit-*-tee which met with the Administra- tion yesterday afternoon. After meeting with the Administration, the Senate committee agreed unanimously to allow the Council of Religion to work out a solution with Hugh Carey Willett, director of admissions. Willett has agreed to view the proposals of the council, and apply their recommendations if they are not too expensive and do not entail too much labor, it was said. PADGETT WITHDRAWS Padgett, who had agreed to the committee decision yesterday afternoon, withdrew his assent when it was revealed that the ocanmittee report had been publicized in Row political speeches yesterday afternoon. “After meeting with the Administration this afternoon, I agreed to the compromise since I felt that it would remove the issue from the politics attached to it,” Padgett said. “I expected - the issue to be kept out of politics in this manner. Since then, however, I have learned that a Row candidate was apprised of the committee decision and used it in political speeches. HE DECLINES TO SUN “I am not now a candidate for any position on tbe Senate and I won’t be a candidate in the future because of the political aspect given to this strictly moral issue. I am a dying duck as far as SC politics is concerned,” Padgett said. Administration officials defended the use of race and descent information as necessary data for permanent records, job placement data, bousing needs, and scholarship. A serious Senate group faced the problem from tbe consideration of which approach would get tbe best results and voted 27-3 to allow the Council of Religion to do the ground work. WORK THROUGH CHANNELS “We will not lose the moral goal no matter which approach we use,” Rules Committee Chairman Bill Bretz said. “We can buck our beads against tiie wall and get nowhere or we can work through channels and reach an agreement with the Administration.” After long rounds of discussion, Padgett agreed to conform with the committee view as reached in the afternoon session. “I’m in favor of anything that will insure that the spirit of my original proposal is carried out. However, you’re of the opinion that the council will get something done,” Padgett sqid. “We’ve gone to the administration and asked them what we should do. We’re mature enough to make our own decisions. We can stand on our own feet. RIGHT TO INQUIRE “You’ve lost a great deal. You’ve lost the right to ask questions. You’ve lost the right to inquire,” Padgett said. An ex-Senate member, Jesse Unruh, former senator-at-large, had a few words to say in protest of the general trend. ‘This is an ole issue. I tried a similar one and ran into Administrative disapproval. At that time we were afraid to antagonize the administration. Your report will accomplish nothing. “It’s not hopeless, but you can’t compromise on it.” Knights, Squires Test Applicants The Trojan Knights and Squires, men’s service organizations, will test applicants for membership tomorrow at 3 p.m. in 101 and 102 Barracks K: Applications will be accepted today.
